Homework busting tip #5 – contact parents
For consistent offenders, it may be necessary to call parents to ask them to come into school for a chat. However, the conversation you have must be dealt with very delicately.
The aim of such a parent-meeting should be to find solutions to the problem of incomplete homework. You may want to discuss:
- The difficulty of the homework being set
- The student’s schedule and ways in which time can be set aside for homework completion
- Things that you can do to support the student
With a relentless and consistent approach, you’ll soon find that even the ‘toughest nuts’ can be cracked.
